ugh ... it's late but i just got home from the jem concert in detroit (i went with sarah and mark, kirsten was on her way but the show sold out. i did manage to pick up a little something for her since she couldn't make the show). jem was so cute, so amazing, so sweet ... so tiny

she did 11 of her 12 songs plus one stevie wonder cover (master blaster). she told us how excited she was to play detroit, home to the "greatest record company in the world" (motown) ... even tho her friends described the city as a little "dodgy", she disagreed and told us that she was very happy to be here.

i got to meet her after the show

and she loved my t-shirt! she was telling us that she's had a little copyright problems from using her name (since Jem and the Holograms, the cartoon & trademark, is owned by hasbro) but she was like "whatever, it's my name and i'm going to use it. and the other Jem isn't even real!" she was soooo cute :) and then she signed my cd

and we were on our way. she was very talkative ... she talked for like 20 minutes for each person who waited for her. you could tell she was very genuine. she promised to come back to detroit soon (she described her tour as "never-ending") so i'll have to make sure to see her again :)

* i will add another photo album (on the right side with the others) with all the pix from the show ... there are a lot ... but hey, with a digital camera and a 1Gig memory card, it's hard to know when to stop taking pix.


gonna go see Jem ... for real

woo! sarah, mark, kirsten and i are going to see jem play the shelter tonight

she's an awesome singer and songwriter -- she wrote the song nothing fails for madonna's latest album american life. she sounds kinda like dido but with better lyrics ... sarah scored free tix for us so there was no way i was gonna pass up this show.

more later.


jumping the guns ... and bombs

Iraq Formally Returns to Self-Rule Two Days Early

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - The United States handed sovereignty to an interim Iraqi government two days earlier than expected Monday, aiming to forestall guerrilla attacks with a surprise ceremony formally ending 14 months of occupation.

er ... are we really sure that this is a good idea? after seening the record-breaking fahrenheit 9/11 this weekend (which became the first documentary to debut at #1 at the box office; taking in more money in 3 days than bowling for columbine did in its entire 9 month run) i don't trust a single thing that happens in iraq. with a US marine being held hostage and attacks that are killing people happening, almost, every day ... man ... the whole situation reeks!

gods be with them ... and us.
